Office 365 Gets Data Governance, Threat Intelligence Tools

Microsoft rolls out Advanced Data Governance and Threat Intelligence tools for Office 365, starting today.

Microsoft is making Office 365 Advanced Data Governance and Threat Intelligence tools generally available starting today, the company announced. Both have been in preview mode since they were first unveiled at RSA 2017.

Threat Intelligence takes data points from the Microsoft Intelligent Security Graph to gauge security risk. It provides alerts and tools to determine the prevalence and severity of threats, and an expanded management API to integrate with SIEM systems. 

Advanced Data Governance uses machine learning to retain critical data while weeding out trivial or obsolete information. It gives policy recommendations, identifies and alerts for anomalies (like unusual volume of file deletion), and applies compliance controls to on-prem data.

Effective today, Microsoft is also launching a new reporting interface for Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) reports, which is available in the Office 365 Security & Compliance Center. The idea behind these reports is to provide data on insights, trends, and threats.
